Custom columns

Custom columns substitute the data in the browser and cache columns in your log files with a word or phrase that better identifies the browser or cache value.

Custom columns are pre-defined rules. Instead of your reports containing Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 7.0…), the reports contain Internet Explorer 7.0. However, the original data value is retained in your database.

Each custom column uses a configured rule set to substitute technical data values from the browser or cache columns, and substitute with common identifiers to make the browser and cache data in your reports more recognizable.
